of the next week. >> schieffer: do you think it is in the united states of america's national interest that qaddafi has to go? we know it's in the interest of the libyan people but is it in our national interest? >> yes, it is because if qaddafi stays there is no question that he will be mischief in the days ahead as he has been in the past. furthermore, i think what is happening all across the middle east is in our strategic national interest. if we have emerging democracies, people who come out who say to al qaeda, look, we didn't have one suicide bomber, we didn't have one violent, you know, sort of explosive acts against the west or somebody to make a dramatic statement, we took matters into our own hands with respect to our own government and we have produced change. that just, you know, that's not an iranian moment. it's not an al qaeda moment. it's the people of libya attaching themselvess to the very values and principles that we have espoused for so many years in that region. i think if these countries do reform and they do give greater voice to their people and there is great

. we've got 104 nuclear power plants in america now. i was informed this morning that about 23 of them are built according to designs that are similar to the nuclear power plants in japan that are now the focus of our concern. >> schieffer: are we prepared for an earthquake like this? i mean, obviously, this is not something that is going to happen once a week. but what about our buildings in this country? is it time to think about reassessing specifications for that? >> it is. the japanese, as we've learned in the last few days, because of the terrible earthquake back about 15 years ago, have retrofitted old buildings. new buildings have high standards for withstanding earthquakes. in the west coast-- california, of course-- we always think of the area of our country most likely to be hit by earthquakes. new buildings have been equipped with earthquake resistant systems. a lot of the old buildings have not been retrofitted. it's time i think for states to look at their building codes and see whether they want to take preventive action. the other thing-- i spoke this morning with craig
